Call For Artists: Ozarks Icons

June 5 @ 8:00 am - August 30 @ 5:00 pm CDT

September 2024

Art Drop-Off
August 29 & 30

Sponsored by the McQueary Family, “Ozarks Icons” invites you to delve into the heart and soul of the Ozarks through your art! From the historic stretches of Route 66 to the culinary masterpiece of Cashew Chicken, from the mysterious origins of our not - so - native cobras to the iconic Bob Barker Boulevard we want to celebrate the people, places, and ideas of this region we proudly call home.

We're looking for artwork that capture the essence of the Ozarks' spirit—its adventurous outdoors, its vibrant history, and its enduring charm. Whether it's a painting that brings to life the scenic beauty of our landscapes, a sculpture that embodies the pioneering spirit of our people, or a digital artwork that reimagines the legends of the Ozarks for the modern age, we want to see how the heart of this region beats within your creative veins.

Let the Ozarks be your muse and join us in showcasing the unique character of the Ozarks!
